The Indianapolis Colts this morning made a roster move, waiving outside linebacker Daniel Adongo and promoting cornerback Tay Glover-Wright from the practice squad to the active roster.

This would certainly seem to indicate that the Daniel Adongo experiment is finally over, though they could still choose to sign him to the practice squad to replace Glover-Wright.  He was signed by the Colts in 2013 and had to learn the game of American football, which is what he spent most of training camp that year doing.  He landed on the practice squad as a project player, and later in the season he was promoted to the active roster for two games, seeing action on special teams.  In 2014, he showed improvement in training camp but was lost for the season due to an injury in the first preseason game.  Then this year, he was again in camp with the Colts and again made the practice squad after final roster cuts, and a few weeks ago the team promoted him to the active roster for special teams help.  He played in three games this year on special teams, but he was inactive last week amid a potential police investigation after the police were called to his house last week. According to the Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder, there have been no new developments on that situation since the police call last week and it is unclear whether it is related to his release.

To fill Adongo's roster spot, the Colts promoted cornerback Tay Glover-Wright from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.  Wright was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Atlanta Falcons in 2014 after playing collegiately at Utah State, but the Falcons waived Wright during the preseason that year.  Glover-Wright was signed to the Green Bay Packers' practice squad in October of 2014 and spent the rest of the year there (the last 11 weeks of the season and the entire postseason), and then he was re-signed by the Packers after that, only to be waived at the end of training camp this year.  The Colts signed him to their practice squad on October 5, and he has been there since.
